Nice to see you, Another One.

Gotta say I'm glad to see someone who can even appreciate drumz or drums and space. There was a taper I knew who knew the band pretty well, got permission from Phil to tape before the taper's section (shameless claim to fame on my part, I know). He said that drums/space was a "nice break". First of all, who needs "a break" from a Dead show? Second of all, I truly love drumz/drums/space because of their ability to showcase their craziness without the boundaries of a song. Love the songs too, of course.

Glad to see this thread. I liked almost all of the drumz/drums/space interludes that I saw 'cuz they were so damn different from each other just like the songs but more free-flowing like Dark Star.

Raven Space is one of my favorites though.

2-14-68. People talk about Bill and Mickey being a fourhanded drummer. This was much more true before 1976. They were much more primal, forceful, maniacal, much more the heat in the engine of the beast. Post 1971, they seemed to lock too much into a simpler, almost disco style that, while interesting, lacks the adventure and pulse of the earlier stuff.

2-14-68. Bobby: "Come on everybody, get up and dance, it won't ruin ya'!" Then the drums go bamba-de--bam for ten minutes until Jerry arrives with his demonic surfboard to ride those Lysergic waves.
